    Can someone take a picture of what's actually inside the Flexicolour repackaged kit from the Forumarly? (IE like actual contents, manuals, bottles, etc.), because their website is incredbly vague. I was initially led to believe they were only selling the developer itself.

    It has a 3 part developer, 2 part bleach, fixer concentrate and final rinse concentrate. It comes packed to make 1 L in a set of 7 bottles just like the Kodak kit.

    Ahh thank you!
    According to all the Kodak manuals I've read, they seem to emphasise the use of replenishers and starters for some of the chemicals. I assume this is not the case for the kit based on your description?

    Color Chemistry?

    Thank you, to all who replied to my initial question about color chemistry availability and where to purchase...

    I've still not set-up my jobo processor, need a tempering valve, some jobo 4x5, 8x10 tanks, and with the auction-site pricing for those jobo thingies, I'll need a fatter wallet.

    The kit contains enough developer starter for a 1 L kit.

    So much angst for such a simple decision.

    Buy a Tetenal or Unicolor kit from Freestyle or B&H, about $20 for a one liter plus shipping. Or get the 2L kit with shipping for under $40.

    Or, the Formulary kit if you really think powder is inferior. Which it's not, IMNSHO.

    The Digibase kits (Fuji-Hunter) are out of stock until March. I could not find another retailer besides Freestyle.

    Now, wasn't that easy?

    See my post in the other C41 thread for more information on Sodium Ferric EDTA Blixes. It gives a patent reference with data and relates directly to powder kits and film blixes in particular.

    I wonder though, since Kodak seems to be getting out of the photography business.... How long they will continue making C41 chemicals, and does anyone else produce chemicals that could be put into smaller kits.

    It's easy to order stuff from the US, but by the time you add on shipping, customs brokerage, hazmat fees, a 1L jug of chemicals can easily end up costing over $100, providing you can find someone that will go through the paperwork. I really think going forward the idea for chemical suppliers is to package stuff smaller for the home darkroom worker, similar to the way Ilford does for B&W. No reason why they can't make a 1L or even ½L kits. There is only 1 lab left that does film developing within about 100km of where I live.
